Stargirl Season 1 Preview Finds Courtney Not Sure About Her New Home

With The CW and DC Universe's upcoming live-action Stargirl now less than a week away before taking flight, the network is giving viewers a preview of the series opener. In the clip below, Brec Bassinger's Courtney Whitmore is seeing her new home for the first time, and let's just say she's not sure what to think. The same thing could be said for how she feels about her new stepdad Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson), who let's just say has "reasons" for being concerned about some of the moving boxes. Because just like Courtney, we get the sense there's a lot more going on than just "auto parts" (though that car is beautiful).

Previously with the original Justice Society of America and soon to become big robot muscle S.T.R.I.P.E., Dugan will help Courtney learn the ropes to form a new JSA: Anjelika Washington's Beth Chapel aka Doctor Mid-Nite, Yvette Monreal's Yolanda Montez aka Wildcat, and Cameron Gellman's Rick Tyler aka Hourman. Of course, we can't forget the super-villain team that took down the previous JSA: the Injustice Society's Henry King aka Brainwave (Christopher James Baker); Paula Brooks aka Tigress (Joy Osmanski); Lawrence "Crusher" Crock aka Sportsmaster (Neil Hopkins); Dr. Ito aka Dragon King (Nelson Lee); and Jordan Mahkent aka Icicle (Neil Jackson).
